So earlier you may remember me posting about entering a family fitness contest and holding myself accountable by updating weekly on here... ahem... hasn't happened. And the reason it hasn't happened is because I am royally failing! I LOVE pizza, french fries, burgers, and milkshakes too much! I even got a personal trainer to help motivate me and when he told me I could only have 1,240 calories per day for the next month I went out and bought a big greasy burrito at Rancheritos that same day just because I don't like people telling me what to do! Even though I PAID the guy to tell me what to do! haha. Oh Kristen, you are a stubborn girl, who apparently talks to herself... yikes. :)
I've come to the same conclusion that I come to over and over again about life in general and that is the concept of "moderation in all things."
Anytime someone becomes fanatical in anything they become, well, weird. This applies to dieting, politics, religion, social networking, you name it. And the reason is because it throws people out of BALANCE. Life is all about creating and sustaining balance. It's the impossible task we all strive for and the closer we get to it the happier we are, at least the happier I am. And that's why instead of getting down on myself for not being 'perfect' I remind myself that it's okay to be imperfect and to just keep trying my best.
On another subject, I also mentioned I was going to cut my hair super short again. Well, I changed my mind about that too. My hair is about this length and the next time I get a trim it will look like this:
I do! I think it's sassy AND feminine. Super cute. And if I've suffered through so many ugly hair stages for months then why give up now? AND I'm wanting to grow my hair out for a period piece I want to produce next summer.
Why do girls care so much about their hair?
Because hair is the #1 indicator of a person's personality! Clothes are a close second, just my opinion.
My husband and I have been working hard at getting things prepared to adopt our first baby. We have an adoption blog that I'm trying to figure out how to make a button for so we can pass it around for other's to hopefully post on their blogs and pass along too. Until then, the link is www.weheartadoption.blogspot.com We would be ever so grateful if you helped us spread the word so that we can have the opportunity to bring a child into our home to love and care for. I will DEFINITELY be blogging more about this later. But for now I continue to rant on about trivial things because that is what this particular blog was made for. So, thanks for listening. :)
Wait, where did my ranting go to? Oh yes, I remember. I posted some of my music to reverberation awhile ago and I wanted to share it on here for anyone who would like to hear some of it. I recorded these songs years ago and would really love to record more in the future, but for now here it is. Hope you enjoy!
